Natural England has opened a statutory consultation on the proposed extension to the Surrey Hills AONB. The consultation is statutory with relevant local authorities however Natural England has decided that it should be extended to other stakeholders and the public. Other stakeholders include National bodies, Parish Councils in the existing AONB and in and adjacent to the proposed extension, AONB Partnership members, local businesses and landowning groups, community organisations, recreational interests and the wider public.
Unfortunately there is no planned expansion of the AONB in the parish of Effingham.
The consultation started on Tuesday 7th March 2023, and will continue for a 14 week period ending on 13th June 2023.
